    C. Warm in my bed
    Explanation
    The predicate of a sentence is the part that expresses the action or state of being of the subject. In this sentence, "I was warm in my bed" is the main clause and the predicate. It expresses the state of being warm in the bed. "Because of my fuzzy blanket" is a subordinate clause that provides additional information about why the subject was warm. However, it is not the main predicate of the sentence.

    The correct answer is "The dog ate the lovely grass." This sentence uses the subject "The dog" and the predicate "ate the lovely grass" correctly. The subject is the noun or pronoun that performs the action in the sentence, and the predicate is the part of the sentence that contains the verb and provides information about the subject. In this sentence, "The dog" is the subject and "ate the lovely grass" is the predicate, correctly indicating that the dog performed the action of eating the lovely grass.
